 “Scritture migranti” particularly welcomes contributions which are innovative as to themes, subjects, methodologies, and theoretical approaches relevant to the multiple intersections of writing and migration.

Contributions should refer to one of the main sections of the journal.

a) Letture/Readings. Articles tackling the intersections between writing and migration from a comparative or socio-literary perspective, focusing on thematic, structural and stylistic analysis of relevant case studies.

b) Visioni/Visions. Articles focusing on migration from a transmedial perspective (cinema, theater, music, dance, performing and visual arts, the museum and exhibition politics), investigating the modes of representation and self-representation of the foreigner and the migrant at the crossroad between literature and other media.

c) Strumenti/Toolbox. Articles of relevant methodological value, which take into account the latest trends in migration literature studies, from the analysis of migration as a discursive field in various literary genres, for example in connection with autobiographical writings, up to the emergence of these writings at the editorial level, within the critical discourse and in front of the general public; or articles addressing the issue of migration from a multidisciplinary perspective, as a central problem for the analysis of the socio-political dynamics that run through European and non-European societies.

Founded in 2007, “Scritture migranti” is the first Italian peer-reviewed journal with a strong commitment in international research on Migrant literature.

Scritture migranti is an annual publication based at the Department of Italian and Classic of the University of Bologna, and published by STEM Mucchi Editore.
